A while back, ED was mentioned as being released when NBC had the deal with Lion's Gate. Now that they are part of Universal, I would guess that is off and I haven't heard anything about it.

I really would love to see the various Bob Newhart shows released when he is still alive so there can be some show commentaries done. Paul

Hello,



If you are referring to the 70's miniseries starring James Arness (How the West Was Won), that's an all-time favorite miniseries of mine Posted Image Glad to see it mentioned here. Another one of mine is "Rich Man, Poor Man". I haven't heard anything about either one of these for DVD.

How the West Was Won was issued on DVD in Scandinavia by Soul Media beginning in November 2009 with a new season set every two months or so. Image quality was a bit so-so but in August of this year they re-issued the series' as "Digitally Remastered" sets. A complete 14-disc set is scheduled for a November 15 release. All of these sets are of course PAL formatted which might be an obstacle for the American market but these are out there at least...

Usually listed as "Familjen Macahan" through most retailers although the artwork also adds "How the West Was Won".

Box set 1 (Includes the pilot)
Box set 2
Box set 3
Box set 4
Box set 5

Posted Image about "How The West Was Won" (miniseries 1978-79) in R1.  Dave posted the news for S1 at TSoD on 03/21 here

 

This one's been on my list for a long time.  The bonus news for me is that it looks like it's going to be a pressed WB (not WBA) release Posted Image

Agreed about it coming from WB and not the Archive.  If nothing else, that allows for some solid discounts.  And since I know this was one of your "holy grails", Jeff, let me be the first to say congratulations!

Posted Image  It's been a long wait for this one.  I thought about getting those Scandanavian sets but glad I waited for the R1.

 

I'll keep the wishes going for your grail.  If I had the power from the bench, I'd get that one moving....

Posted Image about the new forum platform.  Big improvement from Huddler.

 

Good luck with that favorite bracket team Posted Image
